Suite? What suite? We Days Inn’ed it up for $69 and saved our mulah for the honeymoon =]

Is it really that nice though? They have some nice king suites at a lot of marriotts that are probably cheaper but still pretty nice (hot tubs anyone?)

We are staying at a marriott and its only $79. We dont see the point of having all the fancy stuff when you dont need much besides each other 😉

The Ramada where we’re having our reception is giving us a suite for free.

We’re paying $300 but it’s a huge suite on the top floor.  Angelina Jolie even stayed there a few months ago!

We’re getting a special rate at the $300…I think the suite normally goes for $500/night.

We paid a little over $100 for our Bridal Suite! $400 is definitely a little up there!

@tammyt112 – – thats seems very high. Is there another hotel close by that has a suite you two like that would be more worth your dollar?  I am with EJS4Y8 – I think you should save your money for the honeymoon. 

We have a suite which is very $$ but for every x amount of rooms booked we get a free night. So far we have one free night – we are thinking we may have 3…

Wait is this your preferred hotel?  I mean there should be an incentive for you – do you know how many rooms have been reserved under your wedding block?  Maybe you can use that as a negotiation tool?

Good Luck Smile

We are being comped our suite by the hotel where we are holding our reception.  I’m surprised they aren’t giving you some kind of discount even though the hotel isn’t your venue.  Did you mention it was your wedding night? I would definitely keep looking around to see if someone will give you a better rate.

We are staying in a fancy hotel but due to a discount I get through work we are only paying $70 for the night.

Ridic. We’re paying $199 for our suite (regular price is $299)… I wouldn’t pay more than that unless I was actually getting something amazing.

We’re getting the executive suite at a discounted rate of $229.I’ve heard it’s pretty nice and the hotel’s on a golf course which made me set up the block there because of FI’s love of golfing.It’ll also be the room that the boys will probably congregate to get ready at as I’ll be at my family’s home. If we get enough rooms booked in our block I think  I can get them to comp my room.When we talked about getting a room for the hotel night I immediately looked at nicer hotels. No offense, but we travel cheap ALL the time. Whatever the cheapest is because you’re never really in the room. But for our wedding night I wanted something nicer than a “Motel 6”!

I think you do what you and Fiance are comfortable with. If you think it’s too much but you still want a nice room, shop around a little more. We all choose what we want to spend the extra cash on. Know what I mean? Laughing

ETA: If this is your block I would def try to negotiate a little more esp if you havee more than 10 rooms in your block booked. And also, where is this? I mean if you’re in a big city like NYC then it totally makes sense! And don’t forget you’re on Memorial Day weekend as well which drives rates up.
